Sri Lanka Air Force recorded its maiden win of the 2019/2020 Inter-Club Rugby League season after beating CH & FC 39-22 in a closely fought encounter in Ratmalana this evening.

At half-time, the Airmen led 27-08. Meanwhile, in the second game of the day, Sri Lanka Army and Police Sports Club played out a 26-26 draw in Welisara.

At the half way mark, Police and the Army had scored three goals each.

Meanwhile, two games will be worked-off tomorrow as the first-round games of the 2019/2020 Inter-Club Rugby League season draw to a close with defending Champions Kandy Sports Club on top of the League Points Table.
